Minimum Essential Incident Command System Training Elements (1999)
|The NRT issued a technical
assistance document, Managing Response to Oil Discharges
Substance Releases under the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The purpose of the technical
document is to educate all National Response System (NRS) responders
organizational management concept of Unified Command (UC) as it fits
Incident Command System (ICS) for emergency response. The following
essential training elements are intended to complement the NRT's
assistance document. This document identifies the minimum
that should be considered in developing or evaluating ICS
Incident Command System Unified Command Technical Assistance Document (2000)
|Provides guidance to all responders who are part of the National Response System (NRS) on the
organizational management concept of an Incident Command System (ICS) led by a
Unified Command (UC) for emergency response (updated from the 1996 ICS/UC TAD).
Presentation on the National Response System and Incident Command System/Unified Command
|Provides an introduction to the concepts of the ICS/UC; outlines assistance that
can be provided by the Federal On-Scene Coordinator; and provides an outreach
tool to discuss multi-jurisdictional responses with responders and the public.
This presentation also includes a brief overview of the National Response
Unified Command Technical Assistance Document (2007)
|The Unified Command (UC) Technical Assistance Document provides guidance
on UC implementation to all personnel involved in all-hazard emergency planning
and response at the Federal, state & local levels.
Scientific Support Coordinator during an Emergency Response: The Role of the Scientific Support Coordinator (2007)
|This document is intended solely as guidance and was designed to provide
technical assistance to the federal On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs) on the role of the Scientific Support
Coordinator (SSC) during responses to releases of hazardous substances,
pollutants, contaminants, or discharges of oil (or threats of either).
NRT Fact Sheets
Federal Natural Resource Trustees and the Incident Command System/Unified Command
|This fact sheet facilitates the integration of federal resource trustees into
the Incident Command System (ICS)/Unified Command (UC) command structure; describes resources and assistance that federal
trustees can provide; and where the coordination link occurs between Federal
trustee response and natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) activities.
Appendix A - Federal Natural Resource Trustees & Incident Command System/Unified Command, Department of the Interior (2006)
|This document addresses Department of the Interior (DOI) emergency response and natural resource damage
assessment and restoration (NRDAR) activities, as well as resources for which
DOI is responsible, authorities under which DOI operates programs relevant to
response, and information on response-related functions of the DOI Bureaus and
Federal On-Scene Coordinator's (FOSC's) Guide to NOAA Scientific Support (NOAA)
This guidebook was written for oil and chemical spill responders
and FOSCs and provides a quick reference
to the range of scientific support services available from NOAA Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) through its Emergency Response Division (ERD).
